So you have the catted uppipe off the 02 wrx? Start with that. What about the DP from the 02 wrx? Do that next. Also do a tune.

There are different types of performance. What are your goals? Power? Handling? AutoX? RallyX? Daily Driven?

I'd call TurnInConcepts... tell them what I want and then listen to their advice.


My first steps would be suspension and stage 2.

Leave TiC alone unless you plan on buying something from them. They are a business.

Know what you want to do with your car first. Know your budget.

OP needs to search and read the manifesto.

We have no idea what your idea of "inexpensive" is and we have no idea whats already done to your car, and we have no idea what area of the car you want performance in.

Remember the Automotive Triangle:
Cheap
Fast
Reliable
Pick UP TO TWO

I have aftermarket inter cooler and turbo. I bought the car pre swapped so I'm not exactly sure what's done to it, but I figured a tune was a priority, and as for upgraded performance I want more horsepower I think I'm pushing about 260 to the crank so that's like 200 to the wheels roughly maybe a little more or less I'm not that educated with cars so please bear with me

So... you bought a car and don't know what parts are on it or if it was tuned properly. Start by doing that before you ask what you should upgrade.
